Comedy = Tragedy – You

oh130329You walk across the street and fall through an open manhole: not funny. Anyone else walks across the street and falls through an open manhole: funny. Make the person rich and pompous: really funny. Make the rich, pompous person too fat to fit through the manhole: super funny. Have the fat, rich pompous person get pulled down through the manhole from below by the sewer dwelling alligator: awesomely funny. Have the sewer dwelling alligator from below throw the fat, rich, pompous person back: super awesomely funny. After the sewer dwelling alligator throws him back, the fat, rich pompous person gets stuck upside down in the manhole : hysterical.

I watched a lot of Looney Tunes as a kid.
